Diabetes & Obesity, Nutrition, and Physical Activity
Many chronic diseases are linked with diabetes and obesity.
As their prevalence in Canadian society continues to grow, as well as their associated costs, these pervasive underlying causes of chronic disease desperately call for innovative solutions.
Therefore, our approach to undertaking the prevention and effective treatment of obesity and diabetes must be interdisciplinary, spanning multiple health professions and sectors. As well, it must also meaningfully integrate research on nutrition and physical activity.
